About the course

Technology is transforming the way we live and work. Self-scanning tills are taken for granted. Drones are being used to deliver life-saving medicines to remote areas of the world. Unmanned robots are increasingly being used in hazardous or inaccessible areas. And, while the demand for expertise in this field is booming, the UK lacks sufficient numbers of qualified people. This exciting, hands-on degree will give you the knowledge and skills to create intelligent systems that will benefit a wide range of industries, and open up a wealth of career opportunities. Mechatronics and robotics combines electronics and electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and computing.

As an integrated school of Engineering and Computer Science, we offer you a multidisciplinary experience, allowing you to develop a holistic view of engineering required by industry. We place a strong emphasis on learning by doing and problem-based learning.  You’ll have access to a new Robotics Lab and Fab Lab – a purpose built maker space with 3D printers, laser scanners, laser cutters and CNC to digitally manufacture models and prototypes. There’s also the potential for industrial placements and internships and a summer research internship programme that allows you to gain experience of academic research.

* What does ‘final validation pending’ mean?

We regularly review our courses to make sure they continue to meet our academic standards. Any new courses or changes to courses go through a validation or re-validation process. ‘Final validation pending’ means that we intend to offer this programme, but it hasn’t received final University approval yet. Please call our Admissions Service on 01482 466100 for confirmation that the course is approved and will be running.

Future prospects

Mechatronics and robotics are present in almost every industry and aspect of modern life, creating a wealth of career opportunities for graduates. You could be helping to develop the latest technology, from driverless cars, to drones, unmanned aircraft and space vehicles, to automated production lines and technology-assisted clothing.

Experts in the field can go on to team leadership roles because they have the skills to integrate several areas of engineering and computer science, rather than specialise in just one. Typical roles include: design engineer, research and development specialist, or systems engineer.
